A bottle of red… a bottle of white.
It’s that simple in the Bliss Wine of the Month Club.
It’s a tough job, tasting wine almost daily in search of new, interesting and unique offerings to find our customers the best selection and value. And we see and taste it all – the good, the bad, the eclectic, the traditional, the bold, the nuanced – in search of those select few that dance on the palate and bring a smile to our face.
Each month, we select one red and one white wine that strike us as particularly noteworthy to offer our Bliss Wine of the Month Club members. These are always new wines that have not appeared on our shelves or tasting menu previously. Whether it’s a unique burst of flavor, an exceptional value, an intriguing expression of a particular varietal or region or something just completely out of left field that tastes incredible, we make sure our selections are anything but boring.
It’s free to sign up and there’s no commitment – you can cancel at any time. Meanwhile, club members enjoy a 10 percent discount not only on their Monthly Selections but also on every item we sell at Bliss Wine and Gifts, including wines by the glass.
Prices vary by month but are always less than $25/bottle and usually under $20.

Wine of the Month Club Selections – December 2016
2014 Caricature Chardonnay
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Tasting Notes: Wine Enthusiast: 88 points. Richness and near-sweetness are the main personality traits of this full-bodied and quite viscous wine. With oodles of ripe pear, peach and vanilla flavors, it should be great with aged cheeses and fruit desserts.
Suertes del Marquès
2013 “7 Fuentes” Tinto
Valle de la Orotava (Canary Islands), Spain
Varietals: 90% Listán Negro, 10% Tintilla
Tasting Notes: The Canary Islands are not exactly the best known source of wines around the world… but they are the source of some of the most interesting wines in the world. Yes, those are individual vines in volcanic soil, each protected in its own “crater” against the wind and to catch scant rainfall.
With black raspberry, bitter cherry and other dark fruits there’s a subtle note of baking spices and matching floral notes. On the nose, you’ll find the terroir reflected in ashy earth and salty island air.
Wine Advocate: 92 points. Vinous: 91 points. Brilliant red. Spice- and mineral-tinged red fruits on the intensely perfumed nose and palate. Fine-grained and very well balanced, with sexy floral pastille and incense qualities coming up with aeration. Finishes with strong mineral cut, no obvious tannins and excellent spicy persistence.
